What is this "hip" thing you speak of?

I saw this on Mitch's site first, but I also saw Margaret at Our House's responses, so you can split the credit as you will. Doubt I would have picked up the magazine and read the article, because the "hipsters" they're profiling tend to be, as Mitch noted, yesterday's news almost as soon as the article hits the press, and because I'm nobody's idea of hip. Unless there's some star-struck otaku who saw me at Opening Ceremonies last year and said to themselves: "I wanna be like him." If so, I can only say, "Kid, get help."

For amusement purposes only...
